FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK
Do We Care About The World?
fi^s Christians, we are as Jesus said, "not
of this world," but we are "in" it. And as
His followers we must care about the
world. God loved the world. Christ died
for the world. With the love of Christ con-
straining us, we are sent into the world.
What do we want to see? Better race
relations? Only in Jesus Christ is there no
east or west, no north or south. Only He
can bind the red and yellow, black and
white into the oneness of which Paul
wrote: "all one — in Christ Jesus."
Do we want to see peace? "There is no
peace for the wicked" says the Scriptures.
But there is peace — through the blood
of His cross. And He gives personal
peace, national peace, international peace.
What do we want to see? The church
growing in effectiveness and in power?
The salvation of souls? The spread of the
Word of God?
Oh yes, our hearts cry out, we long to
see men "love one another"; to realize the
peace that passeth understanding; to see
The Art of Caring and Giving
Last year (1967) the people of America
gave away money to charity at the awe-
some rate of 40 million dollars a day, every
day, for a grand total of nearly 15 billion
This exceeded the total budgets of most
of the smaller nations in the world! Yet
how little of it went into the work of
Giving away money seems to be easy.
Doing it well is difficult. Thomas Jefferson
said every man has 2 duties. One was to
the church once more, with dignity and
authority, becoming God's witness in a
careless world; to know that "multitudes
in the valley of decision" are converted
to Christ; that the Word will be read by
"each man in his own tongue".
How? By virtue of its effective contribu-
tion, we believe that the Bible College
movement is one of the great means that
God is using for these ends.
How? By men and women coming for
preparation through study and practice. By
men and women praying for the College in
these momentous days. By men and
women supporting the College to enable
its healthy development and spiritual effect-
The prophet said, as the mouthpiece of
God: "I sought for a man from among
them that should make up the hedge and
stand in the gap before f^e for the land
. . . but I found none."
What a sad commentary on those who
do not care. Read the following paragraphs
and see if you care enough to share in
God's work here.
devote a certain portion of his income for
charitable purposes. The other was to see
it was applied to do the most good of
which it was capable.
Gifts should be meaningful. They should
be purposeful. They should be honoring
to the Lord. They should further His work.
Is wise, careful giving worth the sacrifice,
the praying, the planning? Yes! Gifts can
be used and blessed of God to reach the
world with the good news of His love.
And we — you there and we here —
can share in it together.

This ISSUE of The RECORDER,

ation Ontario Bible College is moving away
from the sandbars and shoals, and under
full sail has set out on its course. We be-
lieve that it is a course pre-set by the
Lord, for is He not the "Captain of our
The sandbars and the shoals were very
real to us in September. We needed
residences, offices and classrooms to ac-
commodate our enlarged faculty and
student body (there are now 341 students).
We had to face many questions. Would
students respond to this new College op-
portunity? Would our facilities and cam-
pus be adequate? Would our alumni and
friends stand with us during these difficult
times of transition?
But out of all our fears "the Lord
Walk across the campus now (and it is
a walk) and see our eight buildings, filled
with students and bustling with activity.
One feels the very atmosphere of dedica-
tion and Christian vitality.
Residences are full (we have 3 new
ones); the Library has an overflow room;
the H^usic Conservatory is too small, and
hymns and songs can be heard in almost
any room that is vacant for the hour; class-
rooms are plotted for the best available
use of space, with all the care of a
military maneuver; and the dining room
calls for the ingenuity of a quartermaster
and the utmost in logistic planning.
But the unity and harmony, the fellow-
ship and understanding as all the diverse
elements of the two Colleges merge more
and more, surely indicate the blessing of
the Lord on the newly formed school.
Not that the problems are past! There
are still some difficult areas that will call
for much wisdom and grace. If the student
body increases as is anticipated, much
thought will have to go into a larger cam-
pus. If the College is to meet the needs of
this complex day and still maintain its dis-
tinction as a BIBLE College — where
young people can be trained for the ser-
vice of the Lord Jesus Christ around the
world, where Ivlissions and Pastoral minis-
tries are emphasized, and where the Word
of God is believed and taught — then we
must have an undergirding of prayer and
support from those of "like precious faith"
and of like concern for God's work.
"J"he President of the United States who
was being elected last month will take his
oath of office in January with his hand on
a Bible. When Queen Elizabeth II was
crowned the royal sovereign of the United
Kingdom in June 1953, one of the bishops
who took part in the ceremony carried a
Bible as they walked before her from the
door of Westminster Abbey to the scene
of her enthronement. She took her corona-
tion vows upon the sacred Word of God.
For the past 200 years the Bible has been
under attack. Before that, little effort was
made to discredit the Scriptures, but in
our day many people have come to doubt
that the Bible is authoritative, reliable and
trustworthy. I would like to speak to their
Now when we make an effort to contend
for the truth of the Bible, we are often ac-
cused of bibliolatry. People tell us, "You
are worshipping the Bible and not the
Christ of the Bible." But what we say is
not bibliolatry, it is recognizing the authori-
ty of the Bible, because except for one or
two references in secular history, the only
knowledge we have of Jesus Christ is what
is found in the Bible, It is from this book
that we obtain our understanding of our
Saviour Jesus Christ. If we cannot trust the
Bible we might as well throw it overboard.
Without the Bible we could think that
our experience of Christ is self-hypnotism,
or something to be explained by some rule
of psychology. But we know conversion is
real because we have the Bible by which
to judge this spiritual experience. Today,
however, there is a growing movement to
get the Bible out of the courtroom, out of
the schoolroom, out of the national life. If
this movement succeeds they will take "In
God We Trust" off the American coins;
they will take chaplains out of the Armed
Forces; and prayer will no longer be of-
fered in the halls of government. In the
United States some even want to do away
with the singing of carols at Christmas-
time. I can't imagine anything more ridicu-
lous than that.
If the Bible goes down, anarchy will
prevail. Our generation must face the ap-
palling fact that for us it is either the
Bible — or back to the jungle. Western
civilization was built upon a supernatural-
istic concept. The leaders believed in God
and trusted His Word. If that Word is taken
away there are no other philosophies to
combat the godless ideologies sweeping
The Apostle Jude writes, "For admission
has been secretly gained by some who
long ago were designated for this con-
demnation, ungodly persons who pervert
the grace of our God into licentiousness
and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus
Christ" (Jude 4). The Greek word Jude
uses for "secretly gained", which the King
James Bible translates "crept in un-
awares", is an unusual word, which occurs
reasonable for me to suppose, since I am
an intelligent being and God is an intelli-
gent being, that He would somehow reveal
Himself to me and to the human race.
Scientists in increasing numbers are telling
us that there is some sort of order back
of the universe, and there must be some
sort of intelligence. This intelligence or-
ders and arranges and creates, and He
made us, and down in our hearts we
hunger to know Him.
Has God revealed Himself? Yes, in many
ways. I look into a telescope and I know
there is a God. I look through a micro-
only here in the whole Bible. It means
literally "to creep in sideways, like a bur-
glar". And I say that there are burglars in
the house trying to destroy the faith upon
which this nation was built.
Men hunger for the revelation of the
true God. They cannot believe that God
has left us to ourselves. The Bible teaches
that God loves; and men everywhere long
to know this. All the religions of the world
are responses to man's striving to find
God. But the Scripture says that by or-
dinary searching you won't find God. God
has already revealed Himself; and it is
scope and know there must be a God. For
the eye, the universe is brilliant with light
and color; for the ear, the universe throbs
with sound; for the lungs, there is pure air
to breathe. God has made the earth a
storehouse for food, to satisfy man's
hunger. But man also has a deep hunger
of the spirit and the mind, and God has
supplied this need, too, by revealing Him
self in the Word of God, the Holy Scrip-
The Bible was written by about forty

writers over a period of some 1,600 years.
It comprises 66 books, and they all are
concerned with one subject. Think of it!
The great theme from one end of the Bible
to the other is redemption! God's love for
the human race; God redeeming man and
bringing man back to Himself after man
had rebelled against his Maker. That is
what the Bible is all about. Down through
the years it has been ridiculed, and copies
have been destroyed and burned; but it
lives on. It is the anvil that has worn out
Some men have dedicated their lives to
destroying the Bible. Why do men hate it
so? Because the Bible disturbs their lives.
It says, "You're a sinner," and we don't
like that. Men love darkness rather than
light because their deeds are evil. And the
Bible says that God's Word is a light to
our feet and a lamp to our pathway. We
don't want that light. Men said concerning
Jesus, "We will not have this man to reign
over us." We don't want Christ. We don't
want the Bible. We don't want God. We
want to go on and live in our sins without
any disturbance, without any twinge of
conscience. Therefore we say, "Let's get
rid of the Bible."
The prophetic messages of the Bible are
coming true in our day. When we read in
Daniel and 2 Timothy and 2 Peter about
things that are coming to pass, we are
amazed to find these passages sounding
like our morning newspaper. Jesus, 2,000
years ago, looked forward and said there
would be a day like this. Oh, the Bible is
true. Most books are born, live a few short
years, then go the way of everything else
on earth. They are forgotten; but not the
Bible. It lives on. It is preserved.
Not many years ago some writers were
speaking of the "sure results", the "ab-
solute certainties", and the "final posi-
tions" of a science that had disproved the
Bible. These phrases no longer occur with
such frequency. The "assured results"
have in many cases blown up in their
faces. Time after time it has been proved
that the Bible was right and the scholars
were wrong. As a naturalist has written in
The New York Times, "Every scientific fact
that man has so far discovered adds luster
and testimony to the value and integrity of
All the writers of Scripture claim that
God gave them their material. Two thous-
and times in the Old Testament alone the
authors and prophets claimed that they
were quoting God: "The Lord God called
unto Adam and said . . ." "The Lord said
unto Noah . . ." "God spake unto Is-
rael . . ." "The Lord commanded . . ." In
the first five books alone the words "God
said" appear 700 times. Now, is the author
a liar? If he is, let's tear up the whole
thing and toss it away. Or is it God's
Word? In one Psalm alone there are 40
different instances where God is said to
speak. Did He or did He not?
You have to decide. One day I had to
make that decision myself, by faith. I saw
the evidence but I could not prove it. I
had to take a step of faith; and when I
did, my life and ministry were changed.
There came an authority and a power and
an assurance and a security. So I say,
either God spoke to these men as they
wrote by inspiration, or they are the most
consistent liars the world has ever known.
Two thousand times they must have lied
in the Old Testament alone!
Jesus repeatedly quoted the Old Testa-
ment, and not once did He tell us to doubt
it. He said, "The Scripture cannot be
broken," and I believe Jesus. The apostles
constantly quoted the Old Testament
Scripture. "All scripture is given by in-
spiration of God," says Paul, "and is profit-
able for doctrine, for reproof, for correc-
tion, for instruction in righteousness."
What I want to know is, if the prophets
were wrong, if Jesus was wrong, if Paul
was wrong, if Peter was wrong. If so, let's
forget this book. But if they were right, we
had better start reading and studying this
Bible daily, because in it are the answers
to the problems of life. In the Bible is
God's revelation to us that can change
and transform our lives and make us into
The Bible convicts of sin. It speaks of
itself as a mirror, a critic, a hammer. We
cannot come to God unless we are con-
vinced of our sinfulness by the Holy Spirit,
and the Holy Spirit uses the Word to bring
that about. Our next step is to believe that
Jesus is the Christ. The Bible says, "These
are written that you may believe that Jesus
is the Christ, the Son of God, and that be-
lieving you may have life in His name"
(John 20:31). Notice it says "believe",
which means "to trust in, to put your con-
fidence in, to put your hope in, to put
everything you have in". If we wait until
we can understand it all intellectually, we
will be lost
A mathematics professor at a university
said to me, "When I began working on my
doctorate, I came to the conclusion that
there is no God and stopped going to
church. But my life is a wreck, my wife
has left me, I am unable to live without
alcohol. 1 have come now to believe that
there is a God, and I want to be converted,
but I cannot come with my mind all the
way. However, there are also many ma-
thematical equations that I can't fully come
to understand with my mind." You see, we
have to come finally by faith.
The Bible teaches, as I indicated earlier,
that it is food for the soul. Just as a steak
gives energy to the body, so we "eat" the
Word of God to give energy to our souls.
If people will begin memorizing verses,
they will find that the Word of God is food
by which their spiritual lives can grow.
Some protest, "The Bible is hard to under-
stand. I read it, but can't make anything
out of it." Well, I heard about a girl who
read a novel and detested it. She put it
down before she had finished it (after
reading the last page to see how it came
out!). Six months later she met the author
and fell in love with him. Then she re-
read the book and thought it was the
greatest novel in the world!
You can read the Bible without knowing
Jesus Christ, but it is a closed book to
you. It is a lot of hodgepodge; you can't
figure it out, you can't make heads or tails
of it. But if you come to Jesus Christ and
fall in love with Him, the Bible will become
a new book to you. You see, the Holy
Spirit inspired it, and the Holy Spirit will
illuminate your mind and heart and inter-
pret the Word and apply it to you.
We have a great deal of new knowledge
in our day, but I know of nothing that has
been discovered that can offer the world
a better God, a better Saviour, a better
law of ethics, a better plan for the King-
dom of God, a better plan of redemption.
We have discovered nothing concerning
the eternal destiny of men after death be-
yond what this Bible has told us. The
Bible makes it clear that God took all of
our sins and laid them on Christ; that it
was your sins and mine which nailed
Christ to the cross. But through that cross
a great victory came. The Bible teaches
that Jesus Christ triumphed over sin and
death and the grave and hell; and there is
hope for men today.
We ordinarily live in four dimensions —
length, width, height and time — but I
want to tell you that there is another
dimension: the spiritual dimension that
thousands living in the world today have
not tried. It is the dimension revealed in
the Bible, the dimension that Christ offers
freely to every one who will trust Him. I am
asking you to trust Him today as your

Alumnus of the Year (coverstory)
Mr. Alex Deans, Alumni President, presents a special illuminated address to Alumnus
of the Year, Dr. Oswald J. Smith, T'12.
Miss Jane Scott, T'16, presents l>. i :,pecial" award to Mrs. O. J. Smith. Miss Scott's
original poem was both hilarious and touching.
y he choice of Alumnus of the Year, any
year, is a ticklish decision. How do we
choose one person from the scores or
hundreds who might be eligible?
There are a few guidelines. The Alumnus
chosen should be one who not only exem-
plifies the best in Bible College training,
but one whose life and work have been in
some measure outstanding.
Bible College training covers many
areas: the study of the Bible and theology;
the art of preaching and the skill of teach-
ing; the grasp of history and the challenge
of missions: the grace of prayer and the
power of personal witness. These and
more are the elements built into a gradu-
ate of the Bible College.
To use this training, to see a growing
and a developing ministry, often takes
years of discipline and service.
On scanning the alumni, this develop-
ment for the Alumnus of the Year is looked
for: perhaps he should be the pastor of a
church; an evangelist or preacher; a mis-
sionary or one who through some means
— radio, literature, music — has served
the cause of Christ.
Rarely does one find these gifts in one
man. But in 1968, in the 60th year of his
preaching ministry and the 56th year since
his graduation, Oswald J. Smith T'12 was
acclaimed Alumnus of the Year.
Founder of The Peoples Church and the
Peoples Missionary Society; evangelist and
Bible teacher of world renown; missionary
apologist and statesman; author of many
books and scores of hymns; this man,

of the Year for this historical day in the
merging of two Colleges.
Dr. Smith studied at T.B.C.; he also
counselled, prayed with, and encouraged
Dr. Wilmot Mahood in the founding of
L.C.B.M. His church supports many gradu-
ates from both schools who serve on the
We honoured an alumnus. The alumnus

Dr. Smith would join to sing what he wrote
back in 1930:
There is joy in serving Jesus,
As I journey on my way;
Joy that fills my heart with gladness
Every hour of every day.
There is joy, joy, joy in serving Jesus.
Joy that throbs within my heart;
Every moment, every hour.
As I draw upon His power
There is joy, joy,
Joy that never shall depart." (D C P)
ONTARIO BIBLE COLLEGE/OEC. 1968
October 4, 1968 was the date of the ex-
plosion: Ontario Bible College expanded
from five buildings to eight, and three halls
were renamed to carry the names of men
whose lives and influence on the London
campus are a cause of remembrance and
At a special service of dedication, Mr.
J. William Horsey, Chairman of the Board,
reminded us that four of the College
buildings carried names that are honoured
in T.B.C. history: McNicol Hall; Rhodes
Hall and Usher Hall. (It took Dr. Boehmer
to remind us of the J. William Horsey
Library which had not been mentioned!)
Now the other four buildings were to be
named for men of the London College.
The ones were named for these men:
DIXON HALL at 24-26 Spadina Road is
named after Mr. F. B. Dixon, long-time
Chairman of the Board of Governors at
L.C.B.M., and whose support, labour and
generosity meant much to the institution
and the work of God.
HARRIS MEMORIAL CONSERVATORY on
the campus at 16 Spadina Road. The
career of President Percy Harris was cut
off in 1959 through death, as a result of
polio. Mrs. Harris could not be present,
but appreciated the honor to her husband's
name who "dedicated his short life to
training the dear young people entrusted
to him and whom he loved. My thoughts
and prayers will be with you on October
ALLOWAY HALL, 15 Spadina Road. This
building, secured as a residence for men,
carries the name of Mr. A. R. Alloway,
long-time Chairman of London Bible Insti-
tute, Christian businessman and devoted
churchman whose counsel and godly wis-
dom will long be remembered.
MAHOOD HALL, formerly known as Fellow-
ship Hall, is a small auditorium that from
henceforth will carry the name of the
founder of L.C.B.M. Dr. J. Wilmot Mahood
is remembered as a student of the Word,
a passionate preactier of the Gospel, and
a Christian statesman. His life and work
do follow him.
HOOPER MEMORIAL CHAPEL. The Audi-
torium in McNicol Hall will now bear the
name of Dr. E. Ralph Hooper, "the be-
loved physician," missionary statesman,
devoted Christian. His global ministry and
his influence on both L.C.B.M. and T.B.C.
will be remembered as long as this audi-

"The power of the gospel is to bring light
and warmth," Leith Samuel told the Anni-
versary Conference of Ontario Bible Col-
lege. "It is not an end In itself. But sound-
ness without warmth is repelling and
warmth without soundness is misleading."
110 Years of Service
The Conference commemorated 75 years
of Christian service for Toronto Bible Col-
lege and 35 years for London College of
Bible and IVIissions, The merged College
will carry on the traditions of both.
Mr. Leith Samuel of Above Bar Church
in Southampton, England, is a graduate
of Cambridge University, England, in
Hellenistic Greek; he is also a leader of
the Fellowship of Independent Evan-
gelical Churches. During the day ses-
sions at the College he drew upon his
rich background to illustrate his helpful
expositions of Paul's Second Epistle to
"Christianity" he said, is a "thinking
man's religion because it renews the
He described "Heaven's best, dying at
the hands of earth's worst, that heaven's
riches might be given to earth's poorest "
"I cannot stand on a platform", he said,
"with those who deny the resurrection;
no matter how high their rank. This calls
for separation but not separatism."
"A pastor's function is to feed the sheep;
not to entertain the goats."
In his evening addresses at Knox
Church, Mr. Samuel spoke on the "Founda-
tion and Discipline of the Church"; "The

Throughout the Conference, Dr. Nigel
Kerr of Gordon Divinity School, Boston,
shared in bringing a challenge from God's
Word. The day sessions at the College
packed the 400 seat Hooper Chapel with
students and a few friends. In the eve-
ning sessions hundreds of friends and
alumni attended the services in Knox
The Wednesday evening session was
especially large as Dr. S. L. Boehmer
chaired the meeting and Dr. Wm Fitch
of Knox Church read the scripture and
led in prayer.
The Role of Conscience
Conscience" was the theme of Dr. Kerr's
major addresses, quoting Paul "I always
take pains to have a good conscience void
of offence toward God and toward men."
"Conscience", he said, "like a computer,

"As watches need to be related to the
solar system, so conscience needs to be
related to God."
Stressing a different aspect each day,
Dr. Kerr said, "Conscience needs regen-
eration, renewal, content and fellowship.
Conscience also demands caution."
The Conference was enriched by the
musical ministries of the Bible College
Chorale and several smaller musical
groups, as well as instrumental and vocal
soloists. These were under the able direc-
tion of Mr. Warren Adams, Mr. David Gast

During the past few months, missionaries
have sent in gifts (from meagre missionary
allowances) to encourage and support
their college. What a joy, a thrill, to know
that they are mindful of the places where
they received their vision and training.
And what a good example they set! If
every alumnus pledged just $1.00 a month
(or $12.00 a year, naturally) this would
provide over $40,000 from this source
alone — much more than the combined
alumni associations contributed in 1967-
And since many could pledge more than
$12.00 a year (one old age pensioner
sends in $5.00 or $7.00 every month!) the
alumni could not only underwrite a share
of college expenses, but could thus assure
that others will receive the training that
they enjoyed and use in the service of the
Remember, it is also your College!
ASSURE A FIXED INCOME
The Bible College has established gift
annuities that carry double dividends and
An annuity is a means of contributing
to the work of the Lord and also assuring
a fixed income from it, for life.
While contracts may be obtained in
amounts of $500 and upward, a $1,000
gift annuity will assure the owner for life,
at age 50 a return of 4.5%; at age, 60,
5.3 °o; at age 70, 6.2%.
Any age in between or beyond these
examples will benefit on a scale fixed and
controlled by the trust fund laws of On-
tario. All annuity contracts are insured by
one of Canada's leading insurance com-
Annuitants have a choice of several
contracts and are protected in every way
in their investment.
Why not write or phone for more in-
formation and literature? Or our Field
Representatives will be happy to call on
you to explain how annuities work.
There is no obligation. This is just a
means whereby Christian friends can wise-
ly and safely invest in the Lord's work.
There are double dividends!

ONTARIO BIBLE COLLEGE/DEC. 1968
Ontario Bible College Symbol
"phe first published appearance of tfie new
O.B.C. symbol is seen here, and on the
cover of this issue of the Recorder. You
will be thrilled and delighted with the
design, as is everyone who has seen it.
The design itself is the product of much
research on the part of an outstanding
designer (and a good friend of the
College), who worked with officials of
O.B.C. until this simple but profound sym-
bol came into being, incorporating the new
Initials and carrying something of what
the College stands for.
The symbol is a perfect circle, carry-
ing the idea of the eternity of God, Whose
we are and Whom we serve. But it is not
only a circle in circumference, it is all em-
bracing in its sweep. It typifies the world
for which our Lord died, a world that has
been committed unto us as the extent of
our ministry. To "go into all the world and
preach the Gospel to every creature" is
our goal, the objective for our graduates.
The circle is also unbroken in its sweep,
signifying that we are "all one In Christ
Jesus" as our interdenominational and
international fellowship attests. It also
speaks of the merger of two schools,
binding them together in one.
The centre of the circle represents a
gothic window, the worldwide, architect-
ural, visual concept of the Church. The
Bible College does not replace nor super-
sede the church. Rather it is the "hand-
maid" of the church, and seeks to work
in participation with all those of "like pre-
cious faith." The window fittingly points
heavenward, for only with the blessing of
the God of heaven, and In dependent
prayer upon Him, will our work stand.
The two letters within the circle Identify
both the height and the breadth of our
College: it is a Bible College, with the
Word of God at its heart and as the core
of Its entire programme. The Bible is the
common major for all students, regardless
of what other courses they might choose.
It is a College, seeking to give depth
and scholarship to the men and women
who come to prepare for the greatest
career ever offered to young people
"ambassadors of Jesus Christ."
Can so much be read into such a
starkly simple symbol? Yes it can. Indeed
more than all this lies behind the name
ONTARIO BIBLE COLLEGE. We trust that
the symbol will identify an institution whose
Board of Governors, Faculty, Staff and
Students are totally committed to the Lord
Jesus Christ and to the spread of His
Word and His Gospel at home and over-
seas. This, after all, is our true identifica-
tion. The symbol is merely a visual aid to
help us and to help you, remember these

NEW ALUMNI LEADERSHIP
\/\/ith the merger of the two Alumni As-
sociations, a new executive has been voted
into office. Here are the key officers:
PRESIDENT: The first president of the
newly merged Alumni Association is Rev.
Murray L. Hicks, B.Th. L'58, pastor of
Grace Gospel Church, Niagara Falls.
Murray has been very close to L.C.B.M.,
having served as Alumni President and
Field Representative of the school. At pres-
ent he is also serving as Vice-President
of the Associated Gospel Churches.
He is a man of the Word, a devoted
and spiritual pastor and a preacher of
note. The Alumni Association is in good
hands under his leadership.
VICE-PRESIDENTS: Two vice-presidents,
one from Toronto and one from London
were also elected to serve the new Alumni
Rev. William H. Crump, T'49, will represent
his alma mater and he needs no intro-
duction to the College constituency. For
10 years he has been a member of the
Faculty at Toronto; he is director of Fair
Havens Bible Conference, and has served
as pastor of Bethel Gospel Church, and
Director of Christian Education at Calvary
Church, both in Toronto.
Rev. G. Douglas Routledge, B.Th. L'60,
will represent the London Alumni. Doug
has served as Director of London Y.F.C.;
was associate pastor at Calvary Baptist
Church in Plymouth, Michigan; and since
1967 has been pastor of Churchill Heights
Baptist Church where he is leading in
a relocation and building program.
His abilities will be available and
ultilized in the development of the new
TO ALL ALUMNI, BOTH "L" AND "T":
please support by prayer, interest, attend-
ance and gifts, your Alumni Association.
Surely we are all grateful for the training
received and the help that others gave so
that we could study at our Colleges. Let's
make O.B.C. Alumni the best association
Thank you, Alex Deans
For many years, one of the moving and
driving personalities in the Toronto Alumni
Association has been Alex Deans, M.C..
T'49. As executive member and president,
he has served faithfully and well.
In the latter capacity he has helped
steer the merger of the two Alumni Asso-
ciations, and now takes a well-earned
■furlough" from his heavy responsibilities.
Not many knew that Alex served despite
physical problems, the result of his war
service. Even at the Homecoming, when
he knew that the next day he would enter
hospital for what could be a long siege,
he carried his responsibilities through with
the inimitable Deans' touch.
Thank you Alex for all you have done.
May the Lord strengthen and restore you
for further service.
And you too, Lambert Baptist
Rev. Lambert Baptist. B.R.E. L'64, has
been serving for several years as London
Alumni President, a task he performed
with zeal and interest. He laboured long
in merger activities, and shared the Alum-
ni burden and problems.
Lambert is presently pastor of North
Broadway Baptist Church, Tillsonburg,
Thank you for faithful and effective

ONTARIO BIBLE COLLEGE/DEC. 1968
Part of the group at the banquet during the
Annual Alumni Homecoming
"I" he setting was the majestic Queen Eliza-
beth building at Toronto's C.N.E., and the
event was the annual Alumni Homecoming.
But with a difference. The Homecoming
was the first joint meeting of the Toronto
and London Alumni Associations, the first
Ontario Bible College get-together.
About 325 alumni turned up, fewer than
the 500 expected. (What's your excuse,
alumnus? You should have been there!)
It did seem strange to have a "Home-
coming" with so many strangers. At first
Torontonians tended to cluster with the
ones they knew, and Londoners gathered
with their ilk. Then it happened. It's hard
to determine the catalyst that brought
them together — perhaps a face recog-
nized here, a name there. Or perhaps it
was just that wonderful "all one in Christ
Jesus" feeling. Whatever it was, bound-
aries were crossed; hands were clasped:
faces beamed — and the two became one!
Under the direction of president Alex
Deans T'49, (see short item about him in
this issue) the program began. From the
inevitable, but delicious, chicken dinner, to
Gord Hamilton L'63 and his rich, full bari-
tone voice; the Alumnus of the Year award;
the irrepressible Jane Scott T'16 and her
tribute to Mrs. O. J. Smith; and finally
Professor Stanford Reid's message on the
sovereignty of God, to the benediction by
the president elect of the new Alumni As-
sociation, Murray Hicks B.Th. L'58, it was
fellowship, friendship and delight.
Pictures and other highlights are found
elsewhere on these pages. We're just sorry
that so many were not found at the Queen
Elizabeth building. How about next year?
For sure? Good! We'll see you then.
Alumni Homecoming at the Queen Eliza-
Class of '43 celebrates
Three members of the Class of L'43 met
for a reunion at the Homecoming Banquet,
October 5, 1968: Mrs. R. Forsberg (Julia
Zhelka), California: Rev. and Mrs. Vernice
Smith, S. Dakota; and Miss Gladys Lee
formerly from the Chad, Africa, and now
in the S.U.M. office in Toronto. Other mem-
bers of the Class are: Mrs. George Boundy

Dorothy Day, Mrs. Jack Koziol (Vera Musi-
kov). Rev. Arthur Murfin, Mrs. R. Nunez
(Lynna Nichol), Rev. Ormond Wolfrem.

had celebrated their 25th Anniversary on
Graduation Day, April 27, 1968, joined this
Kenya Alumni Branch
|\/1 issionaries from Toronto and London,
serving in Kenya, East Africa, beat every-
one to an "integrated" alumni meeting.
Indeed, as a branch they had merged
long ago, and they were just waiting for
the "parents" to catch up!
In early June, Dr. Boehmer was in
Kenya, attending the International Con-
ference of the Africa Inland Mission, and
he had the privilege of speaking to the
first official meeting of the merged
branches. Perhaps it was fitting that the
chairman was Don MacKenzie (T'47-'48)
who also graduated from London (L'51).
His wife Doris is from Toronto (T'46)!
That's a merger!

of those who attended. Others were un-

MRS. SAMUEL HOEKSTRA (MARJORIE

MR. WILLIAM G. CAREY
London Alumni will be saddened to hear
of the sudden passing of Mr. William G.
Carey, for many years music instructor and
chorale director at L.C.B.M.
Of late years, Mr. Carey has been teach-
ing at Southeastern Bible College in
Alabama. He was in poor health, but his
death on September 19th, 1968, was un-
expected by his friends and associates.
He was visiting in London at the time.
Our deep regret and Christian sympathy
are extended to Mrs. Carey and the family.
The William G. Carey Memorial Fund
has been established at Wortley Baptist
Church, London. Perhaps friends of Mr.
Carey would like to share in this memorial
of appreciation for the work of a man
Do Dreams Come True?
/\s I look back over my Christian life,
it is with a deep sense of God's guidance.
I am convinced it is only as we commit
ourselves to Him that He will then lead
Psalm 37:5, "Commit thy way unto the
Lord, trust also in Him; and He shall
bring it to pass. "
For nearly forty years I have dreamed
of visiting a mission field, and my dream
came true on May 31, 1968 at 1:30 p.m.

first leg of my journey to Colombia, South
My arrival at the airport in Barranquilla
was very exciting. Exciting because five
missionaries from the Evangelical Union of
South America were there to greet me.
What a reception! One would have thought
that I was the Prime Minister of Canada!
It was at the airport I tasted my first
South American food, which was indeed
The big thrill came when I visited all
the main stations and a number of out
stations which are under the auspices of
the Evangelical Union of South America.
The second blessing came when I met
many of the Christians of Colombia and
saw the growth of the church. But I was
saddened to see the economic condition
of the church members. Yes, they are ma-
terially poor, but spiritually I found them
to be very rich. I fell in love with the
children and the people. My hat comes
off to the missionaries for their handling
of their herculean task. They could use
many more helpers.
Won't you pray that the Lord of the
Harvest will send out more harvesters?
